Paintings of Grand Canyon & the West
|"South Rim Majestic" - Winner of the Realism Award of Excellence at the Oil Painters of America 22nd Annual Exhibition|
The Grand Canyon and other sacred and stunning landscapes have the power to take one out of ordinary reality. These places are deeply inspirational to me as an artist. My work is a communication of my emotional response to transcendental experiences in nature. These wild, natural landscapes are both powerful and yet fragile. They give an important connection with the remarkable beauty of the world, but there is something else about them that draws like a magnet. It is a momentary melting of the ego and a glimpse of the big picture.
Subconscious elements of symbolism are everywhere in the natural landscape and create emotional responses that come from deep within, bypassing the left brain and connecting straight to the heart. The colors, textures, and patterns revealed by dramatic light on rock structures and living forms are inspirations.
